Truly Outrageous! - a neon explosion

Alright ladies... it's time to get retro.  I'm taking you all the way back to the '80s.  Yep, it was a while ago... that means we are all getting old.  lol

I found this "Lil Fashionette - 80s Sookie" digi stamp over at {Tickled Pink Stamps} and had to have her!  She reminded me of Jem.  You know, Jem.... she's truly outrageous! Truly, truly, truly outrageous!

See what I mean?  She's fantastic! I had so much fun coloring Sookie. I got to use my hot-pink Copics on this one.  Granted, my cards are usually brightly colored, but this one definitely ranks high on the neon scale.  :) 

I used a bunch of different colors on her skin. There's some pink, purple and blue mixed in there -- typical '80s make-up.  The paper is all from my scrappy stash, so I'm not sure where the DP comes from at the moment.   I think this might be my best coloring yet!  She's totally rockin' out.  SO outrageous!

I'm linking her up to the current (and last) challenge over at the {TICKLED PINK STAMPS CHALLENGE BLOG}. Although the Tickled Pink challenges will no longer be happening, I will still be using Tickled Pink Stamps because they are fabulous!

Also linking up to the {SIMON SAYS STAMP CHALLENGE BLOG} - use three different papers.
